Murder in the Crypt – A Creative Retreat

We have decided that the site specific theatre event was not quite ready to run on the 4th October and have decided to postpone it.

In its place we will be running a Creative Retreat in the Bishop’s House and would like to invite writers, poets, artists and other creatives to join us. Bishopscourt is a wonderfully inspiring place offering all sorts of spaces to write, draw and collaborate. (No messy work though!)

Perhaps you would like to rehearse a short play in the crypt; write that novel in the drawing room or contemplate poetry in the magnificent gardens.

This event will be run on a ‘pay what you think its worth’ basis with no need to book. Join us for a day of creativity and fun. Email rochesterlitfest@gmail or call 07904 643770 to let us know if you’re coming along, just so we can keep an eye on numbers.
